IF the Rock­ing­ham Coun­cil has au­tho­rised the trip to Ja­pan for our rep­re­sen­ta­tive it would ob­vi­ously have a valid rea­son.

I be­lieve it is about time that the Coun­cil told us, the ratepay­ers, what they hope to achieve from this visit, what is the ben­e­fit to the Coun­cil, what is the ben­e­fit to the ratepay­ers and what is the to­tal cost in­clud­ing fares, ac­com­mo­da­tion, wages, gifts, en­ter­tain­ment and din­ing etc.

Maybe then we can get a good idea how our money is be­ing spent.

JULIE Wil­son took this photo af­ter rac­ing at The Cruis­ing Yacht Club Rock­ing­ham. “We had just ar­rived back at the club's hard­stand fa­cil­ity on Point Peron Road,” she said. Send pho­tos to week­end­courier@co mmu­ni­tynews.
